Coraciiformes TAG

Blue-bellied RollerCoraciiformes TAG: Rollers

There are twelve species of rollers found throughout Africa, Europe, and Asia but only one is currently managed in the Coraciiformes Taxon Advisory Group as a SSP (Species Survival Plan), the Blue-bellied Roller. Other species are currently being housed in AZA facilities with some populations fairly sizeable and others being extremely small and likely unsustainable. Those species are the Lilac-breasted Roller, Racquet-tailed Roller, Dollarbird, and Indian Roller.
